Ingrid Bergman (1915–1982) zählt zu den wenigen weiblichen Weltstars des Kinos. Zu ihren bekanntesten Filmen gehören Klassiker wie "Berüchtigt" von Alfred Hitchcock, "Das Haus der Lady Alquist", "Casablanca", "Wem die Stunde schlägt", "Die Kaktusblüte" oder "Herbstsonate". Im Lauf ihrer fast 50-jährigen Karriere erhielt sie drei Oscars. Ihr Leben hingegen war für die Tochter eines schwedischen Vaters und einer deutschen Mutter, die beide früh starben, eines ohne festen Boden. Als Johanna von Orleans verehrt, entfachte ihre Beziehung mit Regisseur Roberto Rossellini vor allem in Amerika einen Skandal, der sie über Jahre die Sympathien des Publikums kostete. Auf der Basis neuer Quellen und zahlreicher Gespräche mit der Familie – u. a. mit den Töchtern Isabella Rossellini und Pia Lindström – sowie mit Weggefährten – u. a. mit Schauspiellegende Liv Ullmann – schildert Thilo Wydra in dieser ersten neuen Biographie seit vielen Jahren das beeindruckend vielfältige Schaffen und leidenschaftliche Leben der großen Schauspielerin, die in sich zerrissener war, als ihr öffentliches Bild es nahelegt.

The vast, and vastly influential, American military machine has been aided and abetted by cinema since the earliest days of the medium. The US military realized very quickly that film could be used in myriad ways: training, testing, surveying and mapping, surveillance, medical and psychological management of soldiers, and of course, propaganda. Bringing together a collection of new essays, based on archival research, Wasson and Grieveson seek to cover the complex history of how the military deployed cinema for varied purposes across the the long twentieth century, from the incipient wars of US imperialism in the late nineteenth century to the ongoing War on Terror. This engagement includes cinema created and used by and for the military itself (such as training films), the codevelopment of technologies (chemical, mechanical, and digital), and the use of film (and related mass media) as a key aspect of American "soft power," at home and around the world. A rich and timely set of essays, this volume will become a go-to for scholars interested in all aspects of how the military creates and uses moving-image media.

Despite claims about the end of history and the death of cinema, visual media continue to contribute to our understanding of history and history-making. In this book, Marcia Landy argues that rethinking history and memory must take into account shifting conceptions of visual and aural technologies. With the assistance of thinkers such as Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, Cinema and Counter-History examines writings and films that challenge prevailing notions of history in order to explore the philosophic, aesthetic, and political stakes of activating the past. Marshaling evidence across European, African, and Asian cinema, Landy engages in a counter-historical project that calls into question the certainty of visual representations and unmoors notions of a history firmly anchored in truth.

"Though his star waned in the sound era, Dwan managed to survive. Considering himself better off without the fame he enjoyed during the silent era, he went on to do some of his best work. Along the way, Dwan also found personal happiness. This thorough examination of Dwan and many of his movies separates myth from truth"--

Scarlett O’Hara und Rhett Butler sind für viele das Traumpaar der Literatur- und Filmgeschichte. Unvergesslich, die temperamentvolle, selbstbewusste Südstaatenschönheit und der abenteuerlustige Lebemann. Aber was weiß man eigentlich über Rhett Butler? Donald McCaig verrät, wie die Hauptfigur aus Margaret Mitchells legendären Epos denkt, fühlt und wie seine Vergangenheit aussah. Er erzählt von Rhetts prägender Kindheit und Jugend auf einer Reisplantage bei Charleston und davon, wie der rebellische Junge zu dem Mann wird, den jeder aus Vom Winde verweht kennt. In diesem einzigartigen Panorama der Südstaaten erfährt man nicht nur alles über Plantagenbesitzer, Sklaven, die besseren Kreise von Charleston und Atlanta und den vernichtenden Bürgerkrieg. McCaig erzählt vor allem von Rhett Butlers Welt: von Belle Watling, der Prostituierten, die zu seiner engen Vertrauten wird, Langston Butler, seinem unnachgiebigen, verbitterten Vater, Rosemary, der geliebten Schwester, und von seinem besten Freund, dem Farbigen Tunis Bonneau. Und dann ist da natürlich Scarlett, Katie Scarlett O’Hara, die eigensinnige und leidenschaftliche Frau, die für Rhett mehr empfindet, als sie wahrhaben will...
